How to Create Index Cards in Word 2007

index picWhen planning and organizing trainings, index cards can be used in many ways. I have used index cards for ice breaker activities, case studies, self evaluations as well as organizing presentation ideas, creating storyboard ideas and researching various training topics. Microsoft Word 2007 allows you to type directly on an index card without having to use a pencil or pen.
